"Oldie for Friday"

Hello Blog friends, followers and all who pop in for a visit.  Thank you for joining me on my Journey through Blogland.  Its a great place is it not?? You can learn so much just by popping on to other Blogs.  If you leave a comment and have an active Blog I can look and see what you do. 
Now folks I am having BIG problems.........well computer ones anyway!!
Two years ago when Hazel got her iPad I had never even thought about having one.  After being on holiday and seeing what she was doing other than reading her books, that was it.  I had to have one, Santa brought me one that Christmas, that was 18 months ago.  Well yesterday my iPad stopped connecting with the computer.....I am so missing it.  I have tried all the things Hazel and Thomas have suggested.  John Jnr who is more in to these things was working yesterday, has the boys away somewhere today.  He is off through to his office in Glasgow tomorrow.  So here I am still in Limbo!!! all because of a little piece of Technology and me being rather dim about these things.
Anyway if I have not commented or do not do so for a while please forgive me.  The computer is in the office and John is often working in there.  I promise I will get back to normal service A.S.A.P.
Here is my "Oldie for Friday"

The Ceramic Lady was made about 12 years ago.  I liked the method we used to decorate her.
She really does look like Bronze but of course she is Ceramic and breakable.  I love her and would be very disappointed if she got broken.
The box was done only about 18 months ago, made for a friend who does a lot of Sewing.  There are a few sewing things on the top as well as lots of my usual Roses.
Have a wonderful weekend if I don`t get a chance to personally wish you that.

That`s it for today folks
Thank you for always calling in I really appreciate it
Till next time

"More Colouring"

Hello Blog friends, followers and all who pop in to see what I have been up to.  Hope you are well and enjoyed some sunshine yesterday.  We had a really good day, warm, sunny .... not wall to wall but Hey! Ho!  we cant have everything, that`s heading towards being greedy.   However I feel today might just be yet another summer day, lets hope so.
I won!t bore you, this will be the last post showing my colouring efforts .....  for a wee while anyway.  I have to be in the right mood for colouring.  I know lots of you have said you find colouring very relaxing, cant say that just yet.  Might get me like that in the future.  One thing I have found that I have to stick to the pale colours otherwise I can only produce a right proper mess!!!!!  
I prefer to be playing with bits of paper and glue.  This actually amazes me as I really don`t like messy hands, I can cope with the glue buts that`s about the extent of messy I do.   Baby wipes always at hand.
Here is my card for today:-

Base card 8 x 8
Blue card stock
Backing paper printed from Perfect Papercrafting Companions CD
SB Grand Circle Dies
The image is a download but I have forgotten from where  .... typical!!
Coloured using Spectrum Noir Pens
Triple organza bow and a pearl flower I made ages ago.

Christina from Flowers Ribbons & Pearls had a tutorial on her Blog showing how to make these.  It reminded me I had made some, they would be somewhere safe..  Question was where??? found them eventually.

That`s it for today
Thank you for calling by I really appreciate it.
Till next time

"I`ve been Colouring"

Hello Blog friends, followers and all who pass by my little corner of Blogland.  I love to have you here, if you leave a comment I can link back to see what you get up to. 
Big welcome to Asrid my latest follower, thank you for joining me.  Astrid is off to Australia to visit her Grandchildren.  
We are very lucky to have ours just 6 miles along the road.  They were here yesterday afternoon, Thomas worked with John in the garden.  They were splitting up some rather big plants.  The bits they took out went down the lane where they have been plated in hope that they grow.  Robert helped some of the time, mostly he was in the kitchen with me making these Loom Band Bracelets. The recent craze for the kids.   Now he has mastered the basics he is progressing onto more difficult ones.  Thomas made one then announced "you know something Granny that`s a real girl thing"  "Think I will pass on it"  The fridge got a shock as has the bread, butter and jam ...... boys!!!
I am in awe of all the wonderful coloring that is shown on some Blogs.  I had a go at colouring over the weekend.  I really enjoyed it, although I have a lot to learn I am happy with what I have done.

Base card 8 x 8
Pink card in toning shades
The image is Sugar Nellie
Septrum Noir Pens
SB Grand Circle Die
SW Bow Die
Pearls from my stash

That`s it for today
Thank you for your visit I really appreciate it
Till next time
